Stayed here for one night, the service in check in was very professional and friendly, the room its self was spacious, well appointed and clean. The hotel is across the road from the river which offers nice walks and scenery.

Spacious clean room with BEST shower I have ever had ! The water came out like a firehouse and was invigorating. Rolled in on my Harley Ultra after riding through 7 hours of continuous torrential rain downpour. It was late and past the 9pm closing yet the staff went out of their way to prepare an incredible Seafood Platter which...

A very comfortable and affordable place to stay right in the heart of Bateman's Bay. Only a short walk to the main street and the RIVER across the road. Plenty of parking. The guy on reception was fantastic and he was extremely helpful for all our needs. He had local knowledge and gave us some good tips.

Well the stains on the carpet were not nice and leaf litter and spider webs on the balcony told us that the balcony hadn't been cleaned for some time. We didn't eat at the restaurant as the prices put us off

Very poor service. Pokey room. No way this is 4 star. Kettle broken. No sleep due to other guests fighting and smashing bottles all night. Apparently nobody on site to control unruly guests overnight. Had to get into a very odd position to fit in to use the toilet. One redeeming feature, it's centrally located ( but so are many...

We spent 4 nights with a group at The Reef.. We were in room 16 towards the back, it's a renovated room. Our room was spacious and nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable with good linen. Pillows were fine. Room lighting was good including the bedside lights for readers. There is a mini bar in the renovated rooms, a fridge...

This is a run down place with little to redeem it. The only good point is the bed and linen are clean. The aircon is noisy, the curtains old and tattered. I stayed on the first floor and the steps up were steep and narrow, easy to fall down I think. I wouldn't stay here again.

Was just passing through Bateman's Bay when I decided to make a pit stop, saw the Reef as the first motel off the highway & we pulled in. Payed a reasonable tariff of $140 for a renovated room which also had a courtyard. The motel also offered room service which was quite surprising quality, not what you would expect from...

We stayed here on a Saturday night of a long weekend. The hotel was full, but the receptionist informed us that breakfast will not be provided on Sunday morning. What a waste of a prefect opportunity to make some money.??? No explanation was offered. At reception we were told the room is a renovated room and it is 4 star....

Stayed over the June long weekend & had great time. Our room was clean, comfortable & the property is only a stones throw away from the town center & waterfront.
